CDs saying "always make great creative" is exactly the same as a child saying, "always follow your dreams." Life has nuance.

I'm acknowledging that not every project can yield great creative, and not enough people can tell the difference. As to who would want non-great creative? You. Boring creative represents 98% of all advertising and it's the reason we all have jobs.

Slalom 🐠 - what is your maternity leave policy? Reading conflicting responses online

All-my dad has been guilt tripping me into visiting him. He is 8 hours away driving without stopping. I am pregnant and am not traveling anywhere where I can’t drive non stop - not even seeing my in laws 90 minutes away. I know it sounds crazy but that is where I am. He half jokingly said I could wear Depends. Please tell me I’m not crazy and that it’s okay for me to not go and my dad should be at least somewhat understanding. We don’t have the best relationship.
